Knitting kits for all levels

Welcome to our range of Gorgeous alpaca yarn kits for knitters & crochetiers ... perfect for beginners, lapsed knitters, and those of you who are already very experienced crafters 


The yarn we use is 100% natural, either 100% alapca or with a mix of quality sheep wool. 95% of the yarn is from our own or other UK herds, although we have one range from Peru, the original home of all alpacas.

The yarn is processed sustainably at low temperatures and without chemicals.


Our support includes HowTo videos and 1-to-1 WhatsApp advice if you get stuck. In the unlikely event you run out of yarn, we guarantee to provide you with more within 48 hours of your call.

What's so Gorgeous

Virtually all the yarn we sell is from our own small herd of alpacas or sourced in the UK from other UK herds of alpacas. Some is 100% alpaca, others are mixed with up to 25% sheep's wool, also sourced from UK herds. We have one small collection of Peruvian yarns (the original home of all alpaca herds).

We use no man-made fibres or chemicals and our packaging is 100% recyclable

About Alpaca Fleece

Your Well-being

You'll find a surprising amount of research on the power of knitting to reduce depression, loneliness, and even improve mental capacity. Here's a few highlights from the research:

Knitting lowers the heart rate by an average of 11 beats per minute.

Harvard Medical School, Mind & Body Institute 2001

Knitting reduces loneliness and increases our sense of usefulness and inclusion.

The Mayo Clinic, 2011

Knitting improves cognitive skills & reduces memory loss.

The Mayo Clinic, 2011

83% knitters and crochetiers say that the biggest benefit of learning the askill is a sense of accomplishment.

The Craft Council

Sustainable Credentials

 Alpaca yarn can be processed at lower temperatures, and no chemicals are used in the process

All colours are natural, and from our own and other UK grass-fed herds.

Alpaca yarn is long lasting, so products will literally last a life-time!

Uniqueness of Alpaca Yarn

Alpaca yarn is popular because it’s so soft, durable, luxurious and silky. In fact, it's stronger than mohair, finer than cashmere, smoother than silk, softer than cotton, warmer than goosedown, and more breathable than thermal knits. While it's similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic.

The fibre has a unique hollow quality that means it keeps you warm when it's cold, but keeps you cool when it's hot. It means it's also naturally water-repellent. As evidence, we wear our hats in the rain and come in with totally dry hair ... so finally, knitwear that you can wear in wind, rain and sunshine!

lt's even flame resistant!
